Hey all:wave: :wave:
I don't know if anyone will remember me
I haven't been on in a long long while! (2 years i think). Im still in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia for my sins:eek: I had stopped painting for a while as other things seem to take over my spare time. We had a bit of problems with terrorism in Saudi so we have all been moved to a new massive compound in the middle of the desert. Traveling to work takes at least an hour and, as women are not allowed to drive here, it costs a fortune to get back and forth. Work now takes 15hrs out of my day for 4 days so I don't get much chance to paint. I've managed to get more of a routine now so started back again, I didn't realise how much I missed painting!!! Wish I could just give up working and paint all day. Any way here is my first painting since getting back to it, can't remember the size of it as its already hanging in my salon, but its slightly bigger than A4. Been told its a tiger lily
Cheers Sue xx

Just beautiful, extraordinary. What a shame you can't drive yourself to work. Not having time to paint is too bad because you do it so very well.

it's a crime you can't paint more often,
cos you do it so well
love the clean colors
sharp yet delicate

Oh wow, Gorgeous! I love lilies - you did a fantabulous job!

You have created a beautifully subtle lighting on your lily.I wonder,what time of day was it painted and is this desert lighting?

The first thing that I said when I saw this was, "Oh my gosh, this is AWESOME!" The lighting is simply stunning; background is fantastic! Such a bummer when life gets in the way of painting...I've only painted one painting in the last six months--hope to get back into the swing of things once I get done with my move to a new place.
Hope you paint/post more often; you're obviously very talented.

cheers all,
lovely to hear from you charliesmum.
I actually took a ref photo from stock xchange, Photographing here in Saudi has recently been made legal but its still generally accepted by the locals. I know about moving Artdreamer that was part of my problem for not painting for a while.
